ON THE EDGE OF FREEDOM

Directors: Anita Mathal Hopland & Jens Lengerke
Producer: Søren Steen Jespersen

Through urban exploring, anti authoritarian young Russians and Ukrainians have found a way to take control over their own lives, by confronting fear and sharing their death defying stunts with millions of viewers online. But the realities of the conflict-ridden post-Soviet era – and the fragility of life – don’t go away just because you are 300 feet up above the city or 100 feet below. 

ON THE EDGE OF FREEDOM portrays the riveting everyday lives of Angela and Vlad; a roofer from Moscow and a pioneer digger from Kiev, offering a unique insight to the ever-growing phenomenon.
